Run a FTP-DeleGate on your gateway host like this:
# delegated -P21 SERVER=ftp://192.168.1.3
Then clients can access the internal host (ftp://192.168.1.3/) via the
DeleGate on the gateway host (ftp://gateway-host/)

Socks will be useless in this case because the (SOCKSified) FTP-clients
must set up (switch) its Socks server to your Socks server to access
your internal FTP server.
